But GMO 's are not just for plants they are also for animals in an article by the wall street journal it says that “Genetically modified animals have certain genes inserted into their genomes so that they can produce ‘better’ milk, eggs, and meat. These animals also are expected to have a higher resistance to disease and overall better health, with better natural waste management.” so by this being said it means the genetically modified animals are good for the environment and save resources so overall they are good. Also GMO’s aren 't just for plants and animal they are also for people they could help when you have kids you can select what
Cloning can also be used if the male in a pair does not have viable sperm, the father can still have a genetic relation with the child (Siedler 70). Reproductive cloning, or somatic nuclear transfer, which is the cloning of humans, can clone sperm or eggs... ... middle of paper ... ...s rate of the process. Although the cloning of plants and animals may cause it to be susceptible to diseases more, cloning can select stronger disease resisting traits that help the crops and animals survive. Choosing stronger genes can help the environment become stronger and more prosperous (Sampsell). Cloning is becoming more widespread as more scientists are becoming interested in the topic.
It is good for financial reasons, it would create more jobs, it could create better quality foods for lower prices and help solve world hunger but in the long run it could turn out a disaster, causing pollution, killing crops, animals or even us, is it such a good idea to play with gods creations? Only you could decide. A lot of scientists believe that genetic engineering is a revolutionary brake through. With the use of gene technology it is possible to create a ‘perfect’ organism. Useful characteristics can be transferred from one species to another, this includes animals with plants and vice a versa.
It can also create a disease-resistant animal, and later on a herd. All things considered, cloning has many application that can improve our lifestyles for the better. Animal cloning is becoming more prominent in not only the science field but also medical. There are some disadvantages, but as time goes on more advancements will be made to improve it. It is easy to confuse science fiction with science, when in reality cloning has long time reliability.
Today, foods are genetically modified through experiments with the insertion of genes administered through a needle or breeding. Genetically modified foods should be produced as they allow the fruit or vegetable to withstand certain diseases leading to more production, benefits the consumer due to increased nutritional value, and provide scientists with new mixtures of nutrients to contribute to medicine. Genetically modified foods can lead to greater production for consumers (Siedler 48). Productivity can be increased with the improvement of the quality of seeds (Siedler 47). This can be achieved by modifying the genetic makeup of the parent plant that produces the seeds.
Well GMO’s allows food flavors to become enhanced because they are engineered, corn can become extra sweeter, peppers can become spicier, and the flavor can be enhanced without losing its nutrients. GMOs have better resistance to diseases, as well as pests. The GMO’s can allow plants have their own vaccine because a vaccine can be encoded into them genetically. Because of genetic modification the crops can be made to carry more vitamins and make it possible to increase the health of the people consuming the food. This benefit is especially important for food consumers in developing countries where people don’t always have access to essential nutritional resources.
Another of genetic engineering is that diseases could be prevented by detecting people that are genetically prone to certain hereditary diseases, and preparing for the inevitable. As well as preventing disease, with genetic engineering infectious diseases can be treated by implanting genes that code for antiviral proteins specific to each antigen. Another advantage of genetic engineering is that animals and plants can be made to have desirable characteristics which could help solve some of the world’s problems. For example in trees, genes could be manipulated to absorb more carbon dioxide. This would help reduce global warming, and thus solve one of the biggest problems earth faces.
Through using methods such as Reproductive cloning and Therapeutic cloning, advancements will be made and hopefully ethical issues will be eliminated. Through the way cloning links to asexual reproduction, scientist could develop even more alternatives to cloning. Although cloning affects many people’s morals and causes many ethical issues in today’s society, it will still be extremely beneficial to future research in cloning organs. Generating organs will someday be able to aid towards patients with terminal organ diseases and create advancements in the research of artificial organs.
It can also increase animal reproduction, which will increase food revenue within our society. Cloning will also, help us consume less chemicals and hormones that have been used on plants and animals. The amount of pesticide and other toxic ingredients used on our food supply is starting to degrade are health by causing cancer and other diseases. These are some of the main reasons that cloning will help. Not only help but improve our future generations.
Scientists use cloning techniques to make identical test subjects, so reducing the amount of error in animal tests. They can also protect endangered species by cloning couples in captivity. Many can benefit from organ cloning, although the process has not been perfected yet. Human ears have been reproduced on mice, which shows all the applications of cloning. In the future, this genetic mutation may save the lives of countless people that are if we can use animals to grow human organs in.
